Starting this week I'll be putting the recipe of the week on the blog so that people can respond with their own recipes. I can't wait to see what everyone is cooking.
Last night I made pizza with the large green round summer squash that has been sitting in my fridge for over a week. And it was great. I used to think summer squash was boring but there are so many things you can do with it.
Like: Chocolate Zucchini Cake( a family favorite)
Other recipes I made this week:
Grilled Herbed Potatoes
Cold Curried Carrot Soup
Here is the pizza recipe:
Pizza with Zucchini, Eggplant and Ricotta
1 cup of ricotta(or enough to cover your dough)
zest of 1 lemon
1/4 cup of freshly grated parmesan
any variety of summer squash or zucchini
any variety of eggplant
2 cloves of garlic
pizza dough(can make yourself, or my version (bought at the grocery store))
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Mix in small bowl ricotta, lemon zest, salt, pepper, slight squeeze of lemon, and parmesan. Stretch out dough over pizza stone or baking sheet. In pan, saute zucchini, eggplant, and garlic until browned. Spread ricotta mixture evenly over dough, top with zucchini, eggplant, salt, pepper, and a little bit of parmesan. And bake until dough is browned to your liking, probably somewhere around ten minutes.
